how it works

The Laureus Sporting Moment Award celebrates the moments that embody the true values of sport and its unique power to change the world for the better. Each Sporting Moment is chosen because it exemplifies sporting values such as fair play, sportsmanship, humanity, overcoming adversity, dedication and helping others.


Every month between March and December 2018, fans have been choosing their favourite Laureus Sporting Moment of the Month from a shortlist of four. Inspiring stories from beyond the field of play that demonstrate how sport can make a difference to people’s lives. 
The ten winners went head-to-head in a final public vote, with the ultimate winner announced at the 2019 Laureus World Sports Awards.
